    Found another 'fix' for those who like to mess with System Fonts:

    In the Settings, use a semi-colon: h;mm

    Click image for larger version.

    Pick the last one that shows up (U+A789: Modifier Letter Colon)

    Copy that and replace the colon in the sShortTime string.

    Hit "OK" and wait for the clock to change to the next minute. Blam! Colon

    As an experiment, I tried your method and I can confirm it does exactly what it says on the tin! Excellent info, and if a dufus like me can follow the guide, then anyone can

    OPEN REGEDIT

    THEN....
    Open up Character Map, switch to unicode and SEARCH for "colon"

    SELECT the last one that shows up (U+A789: Modifier Letter Colon)

    SELECT COPY and then replace the colon in the sShortTime string.
